The volunteers who work with Southern California-based dog rescue and shelter Hope For Paws often have to travel far and wide to help rescue the dogs that concerned callers report to them.
In most instances, the reward they get for their immense efforts is simply seeing the dogs find happiness and a new forever home.
When they picked up a homeless Newfoundland named Everest, though, the outcome of his rescue story showed that every second chance is an opportunity to pay it forward!
Hope For Paws founder Eldad Hagar and volunteer Loreta Frankonyte were called about Everest when the large, shaggy pup seemed to lose the companion he had been scavenging with.
Upon his rescue, Hagar and Frankonyte noticed that the giant was one of the sweetest, calmest souls they had rescued to date—and within days, his temperament helped him find an especially rewarding new forever home!
The trio hopped on a plane from Los Angeles to Oregon, where Everest met his new family, including a pair of new furry friends named Bonnie and Clyde.
With plenty of land and snow at his new home, Everest immediately fell in love—but he won’t just be a companion for his loving new owners.
Instead, he’s going into immediate training to become a service dog, and will join Clyde in visiting children’s hospitals—a perfect occupation for his patient, soothing nature.
What an amazing turn from what was an exhausting life on the streets to a beautiful new home. WATCH BELOW:
